UPDATE: After Dark Horrorfest to Open Pulido's Graves

Man, 2009 has flown away from us! Just flown away! It's hard to believe, but it's already time for the next After Dark Horrorfest to begin gearing up, and today they've announced the very first addition to their special brand of mayhem!

House of the Wolf Man Pics and Info

One of our eagle-eyed readers sent us a heads-up about a new installment in the Wolf Man saga entitled House of the Wolf Man that is being filmed in and around the Los Angeles area with Sick Girl (review here) director Eben McGarr pulling double duty as the film's writer and director and Lon Chaney, Jr.'s grandson, Ron Chaney, starring as the titular character.

New Saw VI Motion Poster

Motion posters have become all the rage recently, and we've gotta admit they are pretty eye-catching. It only makes sense that the Halloween season's biggest franchise would get one of its own to promote its latest chapter.

New Creature Still: Rec 2

Unlike some other stills that have been coming out for other flicks, the folks behind the upcoming sequel Rec 2 are opting to give fans a taste of what they really want!

Another Behind-the-Scenes Image: Twilight: New Moon

Another behind-the-scenes still from the only tweener-fest to have cougars everywhere roaring (and in some cases writhing) in anticipation, New Moon, surfaced today ... and if you thought the last still was action packed, you haven't seen anything yet!

UPDATE: Lionsgate Unveils Second Batch of Ghost House Underground Titles

Early sales art for four of Lionsgate's big Halloween '09 releases has surfaced, showcasing the second batch of DVD's and Blu-rays in their Ghost House Underground line, and there are a couple of winners in the mix!

Leonardo DiCaprio Taking Us to The Twilight Zone

We are about to re-enter another dimension. A dimension of familiar sights, sounds, and minds. There's a sign post up ahead. Next stop -- the remake zone!

Do-Over to Keep You Wide Awake

Yet another graphic novel is making the jump to the big screen. But this one? This one has a super hot chick battling horror inducing creatures with various sharp implements while monster gore flies about liberally and with reckless abandon. In short -- we're interested!

Event Report: Nevermore: An Evening With Edgar Allan Poe

The only thing better than reading the Gothic works of Edgar Allan Poe is hearing them read by the distinct paranoid voice of horror icon Jeffrey Combs. If you’re a fan of the Re-Animator star – and how could you not be?

Syfy Slates Dushku's Graves, New Corn for September

Remember that Eliza Dushku movie about a group of surfers finding a cursed board game that claims a life whenever played? It seems like we've been reporting about Open Graves for a couple years now. That might be because we have. We last reported on it this past February, quoting Dushku herself as being unsure if or when the film would see the light of day. How does September 19th on Syfy sound?

Go Hero Preps Harryhausen Creations

Go Hero is set to make its mark on San Diego Comic-Con with a line of 12-inch scaled figures you are not likely to forget. Combining an eye for fine art wrapped up in every stitch of clothing, accessory detail, and sculpted part with the sensibility of an overgrown kid who always wanted kick-ass toys from Ray Harryhausen creations, Go Hero has created some amazing new collectibles!

Kendal Sinn Unveils Shadow Falls Memorial

Our working relationship with writer/director Kendal Sinn and his frequent collaborator Patrick Rea goes back several years, just about to 2001, which is when Sinn first started conceptualizing Shadow Falls, an Internet horror/sci-fi serial about eerie goings-on in a creepy Kansas town. His end goal was to have 36 short films and then finish with a feature.

Lautner, Sheen, and Lefevre Talk Up New Moon

Only a few outlets were granted set visits during the filming of Summit Entertainment's money-in-the-bank sequel New Moon, and now that we're inching closer to its November 20th release date, their reports and interviews are starting to trickle out with some pretty choice descriptions of what they saw ... and a few sound bites from the actors who achieved overnight fame thanks to the Twilight series' rabid fanbase.

New Pics of Jennifer's and Needy's Bodies

It may be called Jennifer's Body, but the person I'm most interested in seeing on the big screen reciting Diablo Cody's snappy dialogue is Jennifer's friend Needy, played by Amanda Seyfried. If anyone can keep it real, and relevant, it's Amanda. So it's nice to see a few shots of her mixed in with all the ones we've gotten of the film's star, Megan Fox.
